Nice hotel. Very central. Rooms excellent. Very comfortable. Renovations ongoing (Feb 2016) so it slightly took from the experience. Lunch food excellent. Breakfast good enough but could improve. Again renovations seemed to impact here. Staff very friendly and very helpful.

This hotel is fab. Perfect location. Efficient staff. Lovely breakfast. The recently refurbished rooms were beautiful and luxurious. I will be back to stay again. The river running along side the hotel is stunning with a view of the castle too.

Stayed here for 2 nights with friends. Location wise there is nothing better. We had 5 rooms and nearly everyone had a different price. We had paid the highest which we only discovered after check out. That's hard to stomach. We eat here in the bar, lovely food and we had drinks in the bar, great atmosphere at night. Break... More

We had a really lovely stay in Kilkenny and wonderful room overlooking the river & castle. Although I had booked a table at the recommended Rive Gauche – we ended up having the Early Bird menu at the hotel as our friends were delayed due to the floods and the weather was awful that night! The River Court was great... More

We arrived in Kilkenny with a list of must see attractions / locations and wanted a room near the City Center so we might walk to all the places we had on our list. We spent several days at this hotel and found the rooms to meet our expectations and the service of the staff to always prompt and helpful.

We stopped by the The Kilkenny River Court Hotel for some lunch and the view. The outdoor area is only lovely with a great river vista. And fortunately the weather was on our side also, for October. I had a top notch toasted special, it really was excellent. And it came with nice chips. The staff were very busy and... More

Had a lovely stay here in Rivercourt Hotel in December. The hotel is just ideal for the City Centre, smack bang in the middle of the centre really near to everything. The rooms are lovely and clean (bathroom could have done with refurb) but you get what you pay for. The food is fine also. The location for me was... More

Very nice and big newly refurbished rooms. The hotel has a wonderful view of the castle and free onsite parking. The bar was nice however a bit over lit. Breakfast was great, all in all very good value.
